'Novak Djokovic's reaction was...', says top coach

“Novak Djokovic’s reaction was…” says the top coach

Novak Djokovic broke into the top 80 in 2005, gaining more than 100 positions in the ATP Rankings and recording 11 ATP victories. Novak left the Challengers behind and enjoyed a full ATP Tour season in 2006, amassing 40 wins to edge the top-15.

Still, the young Serb hasn’t played that well in his first five months, recording just seven wins in ATP events and another four in Davis Cup to enter Roland Garros from outside the top 60. Djokovic raised his level at the second Major of the season in Paris, defeating Luis Horna , Fernando Gonzalez, Tommy Haas and Gael Monfils and found himself in his first Major quarter-final.

After a strong effort in the first two sets, Novak retired against world number two Rafael Nadal and started on the grass court with coach Marian Vajda. Djokovic reached the third round at Wimbledon in 2005 and took the next step a year later after defeating Paul Goldstein, Tommy Robredo and Mikhail Yuzhny.

Novak lost the first set against the Russian before building a great pace, not dropping serve again and surrendering five breaks to control the pace and find himself in the second week. After the match, Novak praised Wimbledon as the most prestigious Major and one of his favorite tournaments.

In addition, he ruled out the possibility of playing for Great Britain in the future, as he has heard such rumors for several years and categorically rejected them. “I have been repeating the same thing since Paris, and I must repeat it; there is nothing serious between LTA and me.

The worst for me are the stories about me becoming British. I was confused when I saw those stories and they are not valid. I have nothing more to say about it, especially Wimbledon, one of my favorite tournaments.’

Nole Djokovic is resting

During the interview, Goran Ivanisevic also looked back on a difficult season for Novak Djokovic. “The year has started disastrously and I think the ATP’s decision to take away points at Wimbledon is absolutely insane and wrong.

But an important win for him (Djokovic), he needed it, he showed that he is without a doubt the best player on grass,” said the Croatian. Ivanisevic claimed that the 35-year-old desperately needed to win the Wimbledon title and for a must-win situation, she brought the best in him.

“He really needed it, when you need to win something, that’s when it’s the hardest. He played his best tennis at that time.”
